Hello. I think this situation will eventually blow over with some time. You didn't say how long ago this happened, but I would just give her a little bit of time to think about the severity of this. If you can at least get her to the point where she will talk to you, you can explain your reasons for not discussing your personal debts with her. While you may not have told her about it, she is the one who went through your personal things. She is not 100% clean in this when it comes to trust! If you both had a great relationship prior to this, love should prevail. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a serious offense in most relationships. If she views this as a deal breaker, then I would be concerned about how she would handle future issues which come up. She should be willing to at least discuss these things with you. It seems as though she is over reacting a bit, especially since she is the one who went through your personal effects!
